Second exhibition evaluation

I opened my second show on Thursday, July 26 at The Fish Factory in Penryn, Cornwall. I chose this space as it is a dedicated art space on the outskirts of Falmouth, which, in part due to the university, has a very creative vibe. The Fish Factory attracts people interested in creative pursuits through a … Continue reading Second exhibition evaluation

New artist statement

Having read the pointers from the Lensculture reviewer, I have now tweaked my artist statement for Harena Now so that it will be the same across all mediums.

In one sense this was a disappointing turnout but it had been … Continue reading Open night at Eco Park.

Having chosen not to frame my work, and having researched my chosen magnetic hanging system, I was feeling quite assured that the install for this first 'mini' Harena Now show at Mount Pleasant Eco Park would go quite smoothly. The venue had had a theatre performance the night before and I had the option to … Continue reading Installation day – June 22

Warning notice

I decided my warning notice in my previous blog post was perhaps a little strongly worded: https://josiepurcellphotographyma.wordpress.com/2018/06/17/final-elements-of-first-show/ I have now updated this (and corrected a spelling error) as below: This is more about making sure young children are not left alone in the cafe space and potentially reach for the small silver magnets and put them … Continue reading Warning notice

Final elements of first show

With the first show for Harena Now taking place from June 22, I have been putting together a few final touches - paperwork mostly. The space I have is one wall that measures 6m x 2.5m (18ft x 7.5ft).
